The final lens Leica Camera AG has released at Photokina is the ultra-compact Elmar-M 24mm f/3.8 ASPH. Perfect for photojournalism because of its high imaging performance, large depth-of-field and compact profile. Making it perfect for the new Leica M8.2 Digital Rangefinder’s “snapshot mode.”

Being a useful focal length for photojournalistic work, the Elmar-M’s performance with architecture and portraits at even is widest aperture is amazing. Even stopping down a few landscapes will be in sharp focus.

Optically, the lens consists of eight elements, one of them aspherical, in six groups. The imaging performance is high across the whole field. With monochromatic aberrations and distortions at a minimum.

The Leica Elmar-M 24mm f/3.8 ASPH will go on sale in November 2008 at your local Leica dealers.
